For those that don’t know, Jamie xx is 1/3 of the indie supergroup, The xx. According to the managing director of The xx’s record label, Young Turks, each one of the members are working on their on solo projects. This was mentioned in a recent interview with MusicWeek. That statement means that Jamie xx, who hasn’t dropped a project since 2015’s widely acclaimed In Colour, is working on an album.
Jamie xx recently dropped his first solo single since 2015, with the massive, tempo-switching drum n’ bass cut, “Idontknow.” This release on its own hinted that he may have something up his sleeve. Now we know for sure that at least something is in the works.
All we can do now is wait for Jamie to finish it up and release it to the public. If it’s anything near the quality of In Colour and “Idontknow,” we’re in for an amazing sonic treat.
